2015 Momtazi Vineyard Pinot Noir
49.00

The Momtazi 2015 is a selection of eighteen barrels from three of my blocks at Momtazi Vineyard: eight barrels of my beloved Block C 115 at the top of the vineyard facing both the volcanoes of the east and the Pacific Ocean on the west; eight barrels of Block K 667 facing the east on a vertiginous slope overlooking one of the two small lakes, over which fly the falcons who eat the trout; and two barrels of Block B 667 also at the top. It is 100% whole cluster, and it is a Demeter-certified biodynamic wine. The colour is a deep medium, youthful, almost blue red. It has mystery while being utterly transparent: these opposites are all about temperance in the alchemical sense. The nose is, well-gorgeous-and is full of minerals, blue fruit, and exotic spices with slight floral notes. There is a sweetness (metaphorically) like how the sunshine warms up the forest. There is a bracing freshness with the electric energy of ocean air. The mouth is structured, powerful, exhilarating, and precise.

2015 Maresh Vineyard Red Barn Blocks Pinot Noir
75.00

The Maresh Red Barn Blocks 2015 was bottled from only two barrels of Block 1 (self-rooted Wadensvil planted in 1970) in front of the Maresh Red Barn. Jim Maresh Senior, now 91 years old, farmed this block, and yes, he is still on the tractor every year. I love him so very much. All of my wines in 2015 were 100% whole cluster. The Red Barn Blocks is a light-to-medium, youthful red. It is light-reflecting and luminous. The nose is a straight shot of pure, focused Hood strawberries, and lifts the heart. The mouth is long, cable-like, tense, silky and serious. This wine needs time, and has a very appealing balance between restraint and giving.
